Participe à 1 Session
My professional background is human geography with MA and PhD from University of Oslo, Norway (2002). I have twenty years of experience in teaching and research in higher education, from human geography, teacher training (geography), tourism and cultural management and cultural studies. For the past four years I have been active in the European research network COST Action IS1007 Investigating Cultural Sustainability (2011-2015), where I have chaired a working group on theoretical and conceptual work. My research interest in the Action has been to explore theoretically the role of culture in sustainable development. Overall research experience is nature-society relations, people-place relations, place pedagogies and place-conscious teaching and learning, cultural sustainability, and climate change transformation through heritage-making, and particularly relating to uses of industrial heritage. Among my publications are one book on place- and self-making in nature-based tourism among international travellers to Northern Norway (“Making Place, Making Self” published by Ashgate in 2005) and a book on the role of culture and social learning for sustainable place planning in post-industrial region Rjukan and Notodden in Norway ("Kulturelle hjørnesteiner", Cappelen Damm Akademisk 2014). Ongoing project is a co-edited book, "Cultural Sustainability and the Nature-Culture Interface", to be published in Routledge Series in Culture and Sustainable Development.

What does heritage change for tourism? | Le patrimoine, ça change quoi au tourisme? Ce débat veut interroger les relations entre le tourisme et le patrimoine et dépasser ainsi les idées reçues sur l'antagonisme entre le tourisme "corrupteur" et le patrimoine qui en serait la victime. Il s'agit donc de repenser le tourisme comme un réel acteur du patrimoine, de sa valorisation et de son appropriation, y compris par les populations locales. Cela présuppose, au p...

What if we changed our views on heritage? And if heritage has already changed? While, on the global scene, states maintain their leading role in the mobilization of social and territorial histories, on the local scale, regions, neighbourhoods and parishes have changed. Citizens and communities too: they latch on to heritage to express an unprecedented range of belongings that no law seems to be able to take measures to contain, often to the discontent of...

Most of what we experience as heritage emerges into conscious recognition through a complex mixture of political and ideological filters, including nationalism.  In these processes, through a variety of devices (museums, scholarly research, consumer reproduction, etc.), dualistic classifications articulate a powerful hierarchy of value and significance.  In particular, the tangible-intangible pair, given legitimacy by such international bodies as UNESCO, reproduces a selective ordering of cul...

"What does heritage change?" is a multifaceted  question to which the answer(s) are in primary respects related to real-life negotiations among different groups of citizens, cultures, races, ethnic groups, sexual identities, and social classes about received, official and/or widely accepted or accomodated intangible attributes, cultural traditions, historic monuments, buildings, and other transmitted or revived historical legacies. Heritage designated by and for whom, for what motivations, an...

Le patrimoine fait aujourd’hui l’objet d’attentions autant que d’agressions et de destructions. Cela peut s’expliquer par les difficultés de son identification ou de sa conservation. Cela peut plus profondément s’expliquer parce que, dès le départ, il célébre un événement ou conserve une mémoire qui peut être ou devenir une source de dissenssions et de conflits politiques. Enfin, sa reconnaissance suscite des gains économiques pour les uns mais des pertes pour les autres. Mais peut-être...
